The City of London School for Girls win Kids Lit Quiz Final!!

It was a truly wonderful day and The City of London School for Girls came first at the International final of the Kids' Lit Quiz yesterday. Canberra Grammar School from Australia came a close second and Awakeri Primary School from New Zealand came third.

The Two Steve's were the most wonderful MC’s that you can imagine and Tim Bowler really did “Bowl everyone over”  !!!

He gave the most inspiring talk to the  contestants at the beginning of the event and a wonderful speech after the Celebration Dinner in the evening.

Judy Curry , the CEO of the Commonwealth Education Trust (CET)  spoke about the importance of reading and how pleased the Trust is to support the KLQ.

After the interval Dr Alice Curry presented each of the team's accompanying librarians with an anthology of Folk Tales and Poems from around the Commonwealth. This was compiled for the 125 anniversary of the CET and called “A River of Stories”.

It was an exciting finish as, until the penultimate round, the Australian team had a clear lead, then the home team, quick on the buzzer, just kept scoring point after point. They walked away with the top prize of £100 each, lots of lovely books, fantastic goodie bags and the coveted KLQ International Cup.

Many, many congratulations to the four contestants:

  • Alish Coleman
  • Annie Roberts
  • Clementine Sagar Scott
  • Hannah Haines.

Also thanks go to their  teacher, Brian Ward, and librarian, Rhian Trevor and to Rachel Hine, who represented the SLA on the day.
